Artist's Description

For many years this historic bridge over Waxahachie Creek was the only access into town for communities such as Collier’s Chapel, Cartwright, Howard, Bardwell, Avalon, Nash, Byrd, Rankin and others in southeast Ellis County. Families brought cotton and other crops to nearby gins and First Monday Tradesday. Easily accessible were the railroads, cotton compress, hot wells, and livery stables. Automobiles often parked around the hot wells and the children played in the park while families took care of their business.
